I've used Quicken. MS Money, Moneydance, and others and KMyMoney is the best. You guys did an excellent job.

Just wanted to say "Thank you" for all your effort in developing this excellent money management program. I have finally weaned myself off M$Money after many years of use. The learning curve for KMyMoney was a little steeper than that of MSMoney, however, it was well worth it. I am now completely free from Microsoft (MSMoney was the last hold out). Once again, thank you so very much!

Anyway, wonderful, having nearly 8 years of personal accounting in a simple to use, robust, easy to use with the keyboard only, easy to customize reports, easy to print for the wife software is really really great!

I just want to add that I've recently decided to really take a hold of my finances, budget properly etc., and I've found KMyMoney to be excellent so far. The interface is intuitive and helpful, there's no unnecessary jargon, I've found no bugs at all, and the reports are powerful. It's going to be a real boon and I found it just when I needed it.

I'm now starting to use Kmymoney properly and I've got to say I really like the software. You've done an excellent job. It's intuitive and easy to use. All the useful standard reports that I need are there (and more) and I'm really pleased with what I see.

The interface is intuitive, the workflow is superb, the quality of the program is top notch and I have to say, this is one of the most polished, wellconceived, easiest to use yet deep enough to do what you need financial apps I have ever seen.

I have said this before, but am happy to say it again ... as a long-term [but now ex-] Quicken-user, & a GnuCash-user [also now ex-] for ~a year, i think that KMM is just *fabulous*. To everyone who designed, built & actively maintains & enhances it... thank you for doing your marvellous work for the world!!!

currawong (on the KDE forum)

I have evaluated most of the freely available personal finance packages available under Linux and found the feature that I was asking about is included in many of them.

Although there are several very good packages available, they all seem to lack some crucial element of some type, e.g. some don't support split transactions (an essential feature in my opinion), some don't support fiscal years other than calendar years, some don't have reconciliation features and so on.

KMyMoney I have found to be the most comprehensive (just lacking this minor feature) so I will continue to use it and make use of the cheque no. field as a payment mode field.

First, let me say that I am EXTREMELY impressed with KMyMoney2. The functionality, completeness and ease of use are tremendous, and I have thoroughly enjoyed using it.

[18:19] ipwizard: Is it also possible to link (or however to call it) transaction from a bankaccount to scheduled transactions in KMymoney?
[18:19] that is, from within the qif file
[18:20] Yes, that's what transaction matching is for. See http://kmymoney2.sourceforge.net/online-manual/details.ledgers.match.html
[18:22] aah cool. You guys make accounting almost fun :)

Paul Saletan

This is one of the most polished open source applications you'll find. The user interface and navigation is beautifully engineered. The developers have delivered a complex double entry accounting system but kept it easy to use. As a long-time Quickbooks user who also tried GnuCash, I had despaired of finding a Linux personal finance app good enough to ditch Windows. Now I'm getting my accounts balanced in half the time and enjoying it. Kudos!

Bruce Herdman

KMyMoney is a very polished application. It works just fine and I have no niggles at all. Much better than Quicken Personal Plus 2009 on Vista or XP. No bringing the system down and just as many features that I use.

Dave Le Huray

I have recently started using KMyMoney (v0.9.3) on my laptop running PCLinuxOS2009. I am looking to replace Moneydance, for no other reason than the data is locked in proprietary format. I have looked at KMyMoney before and not found it suitable but now I must say that I am very pleased and it looks like I'll be changing over very shortly.

... After testing a dozen of different softwares, which didn't fit my needs, I finally discovered KMyMoney. It was love at first sight and to make things even better, it imported my 3 years old gnucash file without miss a single record! That's a fantastic job guys! KMyMoney is the *only* software that can actually do that, congratulations!

Dear developers of KMyMoney, this is just a general thanks to all of you!

I never worked with Quicken on Windows. Years back I used some tool called Dialog24 for HBCI access to Deutsche Bank, but gave up on it for various reasons... I am so happy that I found KMyMoney running on my beloved Linux!!! >>> This tool currently saves my ass. <<< :) Honestly! Without it's features I'd be in deep trouble. THANKS. THANKS. THANKS. Wish I could contribute more to it than just translating or bugging you developers with little quirks or design proposals... But I wouldn't have time for more than this, to tell the truth.

Anyway, once again I want to express my thanks to all of you. I am very happy that you guys (especially Thomas and Alvaro) are so active here and almost instantaneously respond to everything. I hope to be able to contribute a bit more in the future when ressources and time allow that.

Firstly, I wish to express my sincere gratitude and thanks to everybody involved with this great project. I finally have a replacement for the very last application that required me to keep M$FT software on my hard drives. I have been using Microsoft Money for more than 12 years and have a huge file containing every transaction from approx 10 open accounts and about another 12 accounts that have been closed. M$ Money has handled this fairly well although various problems have arisen over the years that have always been solved by purchasing and upgrading to the next version.

Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of KMyMoney (I run the CVS version) and the excellence of it's informative reports is one of the key reasons I much prefer it to other finance programs.

Hi Guys,

Just built the current developer version from CVS and am seriously impressed. KMyMoney has just leapt ahead of MS Money by a fair margin, and I can at last ditch the Windows XP VM that's cluttering up my disk.

I would like to take a few minutes to thank you for all the work and time you have devoted to creating KMyMoney. I recently began using version 0.8.7 and am very pleased with it; I think KMyMoney will likely allow me to move away from Quicken and handle my finances entirely in Linux.  ...

While I have played with Linux off and on for the past few years, This is the first time I have found it able to finally replace my windows box....mostly thanks to you guys on KMyMoney. Quicken was really the thorn in my side. But since I've installed OpenSuse 10.3 about 3-4 weeks ago, I haven't needed to reboot once into Windows (I have however snuck in once or twice using VirtualBox to do my stock charting software)

Hello! First, I'm so happy that you have created KMyMoney. I use it for all of my personal finances (and have for a couple of years now), and I'm glad that I don't have to buy the bloated, commercially-available software and an OS to go with it.  ...

I've tried KMM this week-end (originally just out of curiosity...) and I have to admit that the overall ergonomic as well as the strange "accounting is simple" feeling just convinced me to do something amazing (at least for a me): manage my accounts in another way than stacking everything for months and then spending week-ends to try to reconciliate the mess (better late than never!).  ...

Mikhail Yakshin

First, I'd like to express my kudos and cheers for generally developing such high-class product. In fact, I've never seen any personal finance products before and KMyMoney was the first one I've seen. It was a bliss to explore and in fact, everything I've seen after KMyMoney (evaluating other products, including commercial ones) looks worse than it.

... Your work is wonderful and I am slowly migrating. The absolute "cats-meow" would be that tool to instantly "beam" all my MS Money data into KMyMoney, so I could move on. In any case, I am a fan, a developing user and commend your efforts.

I use KMYMoney2 daily to run a small business (Yes I know it isn't targeted at business users - but it's ideal for what I require) and am very satisfied with it. It is very intuitive and a "breeze" to enter payments and receipts. The ease in which one is able to make global amendments (e.g. renaming an account and see it reflected in all receipts/payments in that account) is astounding. Keep up the development. I cannot see me changing to any other accounting program.

I just wanted to say great job on kmymoney. I just started using this program and it seems very useful. I'll be sure to communicate with you if I find any bugs or have any suggestions. I particularly like how it can import different file formats, it happens to be compatible with my bank who lets me choose from .OFX .QFX and .CSV.

David Walling

I really like the Kmymoney software and have been using it in one form or another for over a year now. It's the easiest to use I've found, and comes closest to having all the featuers of Micro$oft Money that I used prior.

It was also the very last piece of software I needed to completely do away with Windows as a primary OS on my laptop! I already and Cinelerra for video editing, K3b for burning, gimp for graphics, Inkscape for SVG, and Open Office for office.

Now, if the budgeting capabilites where just a little better :-D

Thanks again for the hard work you and the rest of the Kmymoney2 devs have put in to this software.

Please add my thanks and kudos for such a great KDE/open source application! I have finally been able to replace Quicken, the only Windows application I was still using regularly. You've done a marvelous job with the interface and ease-of-use. The QIF conversion worked well, with KMyMoney being extra helpful at cleaning up the data. Overall, just a fantastic job!

KMyMoney is much more Quicken-esque, a welcomed addition to the open source community.

"Upon upgrading my Linux box two months ago, I switched from using Quicken (via Win4Lin) to KMyMoney. Because of some nastiness within Quicken I had to wrestle the date format, but otherwise the import of all my Quicken stuff went very well.
It took a few times to get used to a different interface than Quicken, but I now feel it is simpler and better. Reports are easily customized, and I like the ability to click on a payee and instantly see all related transactions. Payees (and other stuff) were buried in Quicken, so all the icons on the left side of the screen in KMyMoney are a real treat.

Thanks for your hard work on a wonderfully useful product!"

"...I've been using [KMyMoney] for several months for personal and small business finances, and I really appreciate how powerful yet easy to use it is. This past weekend I helped my girlfriend setup Microsoft Money, my first time using the program, and I was stunned how complicated it was to use even for accessing simple information. It's default page intimidated the user so much I apologized for suggesting it as an alternative to a simple spreadsheet she had before. When I showed her kmymoney she asked why such a program wasn't available on windows.

I'm sure MS Money is a very powerful and feature filled program, but it made a very poor impression compared to kmymoney for the inexperienced user. Thanks, all, for your hard work."

"As I get more comfortable with Linux I am finding myself trying new things. Because I am retired and KMyMoney is very important to my every day living I am currently running MS MONEY 2004 on my laptop and I have KMyMoney installed on my desktop system. I am running them in parallel mainly to be sure that I don't goof something up.
I have been using MS Money for about 3 years and have looked for a Linux alternative for quite a while. I was reading over the Suse 10.0 instruction manual that is shipped with the retail version and found a brief comment their and then I went to google and now here I am. I am happy with it and learning more about it all of the time."

Bill Suit

"I am an 8 year veteran user of the linux os. What kept me tied to m$ for the longest time was my use of Quicken and Turbo Tax.

Several years ago I tried several of the other open source and/or commercial accounting software programs. None of them really caught my fancy, for whatever reasons.

About a year and a half ago I heard of Kmymoney (kmm) and started using it. The documentation indicated that I could use OFX to download bank info into kmm. Though that was the draw for me, kmm also fulfilled all of my simple bookkeeping needs. BTW, I haven't used Quicken for several years now.

Over the last year and a half the continued improvements, the look, and the functionality of the program has just made it a real pleasure to use. Your response to problems is quick. The user community also is a big plus. I've noticed that if the program does not currently support a particular function that you're open to considering adding that function.

Thank you all very much for your efforts in making this a truly first class program. I greatly appreciate it."

"I switched to kmymoney after 4 years of GNUCASH, the import tool worked flawlessly, except for some UTF-8 strings (the gnucash file was in UTF-8).

I switched because on my old hardware (700MHz) GNUCASH opened the 4 years full file in about 25s, when kmymoney does it in 5s. OK, it's a silly reason...

Jeroen Jonk

"Congratulations for this wonderful new release! I am using KMyMoney to track my personal expenses almost on a daily basis and it really does a good job. One of the benefits that KMyMoney brings for me, is control over my financial situation. Most banks in The Netherlands are only sending account statements once a month and keeping track of all expenses and the balance of the account during a month really made me overspend.

Now, using categories, I am able to see where I am overspending compared to last months and I can control things.

The only thing that I am missing dearly is a budgeting function. That would really help me getting even more control over where I should increase or reduce spending.

Like so many others, I used commercial software for many years, but I switched to Linux last December and I have never had regrets. Although my system is still multi-boot, I only use Linux. My wife, who is from Turkish origin, still uses commercial software to have webcam/sound (MSN) chat with her relatives in Turkey. However, the guys developing Kopete released a new roadmap in which MSN video is mentioned for the first time. If that becomes a reality then I can get rid of all the commercial software.

For me, a good Office suite and a program like KMyMoney really made the difference. I used alternatives like GNUCash, but I did not like is.

Thank you for putting so much effort in developing KMyMoney -- I am sure it is appreciated by many users."
